I'm still here. I'm just busy, busy, busy. Many people have received their stimulus checks & I'm trying to help them spend it...lol. It feels like you blink & the week's over again. Is anyone else enjoying this beautiful weather we're experiencing this week? 60-70s Temps. Yes, please! Temps are down to 50s again next week, but that's way better than freezing or below freezing temps.
I haven't been to RA or CVS in weeks. Well, I did RA a few weeks ago to spend BC before it expired. I might have written a post that still needs to be published. I'll have to check.
As much as WAGS cost me most days, I just can't resist their good deals. So here's what I got at WAGS today.
4 x Gillette deodorants $22.00
Less DQ (8.00)
Earned $10.22 WC ($5 WYB 3 Gillette, $5 WYS $20) + $4 Ibotta
1 x Bic Click razor $7.29
1 x Bic Soleil razor B1G50% off 2nd 3.14
Less Bic DQ (5.00)
Less WC (5.00)
Earned $2.05 WC + $8 Ibotta + $4 WC (see below)
Also submitted my receipts to Fetch & PG
The odd cents that you see under earned, is everyday cash back earned. You earn 1% on all purchases. During your birthday month, you earn 10% everyday cash/points.
Of course smooth sailing at Wags is unheard of...lol. I had another $4 Bic DQ which didn't deduct. Contacted CS when I got home and they added $4 WC.
As I'm writing this post, I'm realising that it's probably because the razor value is less than $4. Wags has this new silly rule about not adjusting coupons down - not even by a penny. It's dumb, because manufacturers will reimburse them the full coupon value + 8c per Q. So they're hurting themselves financially. Yes, all those little amounts add up. I have a friend who works at Kroger headquarters. At one stage, they had to work at a store just to see how it runs on a daily basis. She said that by lunchtime they had taken in $15k (yes $15 thousand) worth of coupons. So Wags not accepting all those Qs because it's more than the item value, is such a foolish thing to do.
I also wanted Old Spice spray, because it's B1G50% off & there's a $5.99 DQ + $2 each Ibotta rebate. I went to 2 different stores and neither had shelf space for this item. They only had the original scents (not the ones that the coupon would attach to) stocked. I don't know how Wags issues a Q for an item they no longer carry.
I anticipated the high OOP for Gillette, because you can't use points when using a Booster Q (Spend X amount).
Total OOP : $16.38
Total cash back earned (excl Bic. I have to wait 2-3 weeks for rebate) : $28.27
Total Qs used : $13.00
Total rewards used : 5.00
Retail value : $39.54
So after earned rewards (excl Bic), this was an $11.89 MM. I'll take that!
